DISAPPEARS fall tour dates


Photo Credit: Zoran Orlic 
Five years into their existence as a band Disappears have finally exhaled – following a steady run of singles, EPs and three full lengths, the band retreated to their studio at the end of 2012 to take stock of where they had been and where they wanted to go.
Disappears returned fully stretched out into the void with 2013’s KONE EP. Abstract and experimental, it erased any expectation’s people had about what Disappears sounded like or were capable of, as well as introduced new drummer Noah Leger - a pivotal force in what was to follow.
Era, Disappears fourth album in as many years, was birthed during the bleakness of the Chicago winter 2013 at Electrical Audio by now regular foil John Congleton. Insular and dark, Era sees the band refining their love of dub, minimalism and repetition into their most original and stark set yet. Decision and consequence weigh heavy on the album – both lyrically and through the bands decision to let the studio direct the final forms of the songs.
The band today released first single "Power" on their site, and have also announced a full co-headlining tour this fall with San Francisco-based shoegaze band Weekend. Era is Disappears at their most abrasive, contemplative and paranoid - it's the sound of the void looking back, and it arrives August 27th on Kranky Records.

Previous Press /

"With tensions at its core, Pre Language fuses white light with the darkness of anxiety.” MOJO

"A more advanced take on the muscular post-punk Disappears introduced on Lux, and overall there's an emphasis on clarity and precision instead of sheer volume. Disappears' interplay is seamless.” All Music Guide

“Frontman Brian Case's vocals play out as echoed howls over a circular, sparse post-punk core, one which feels like it's barely keeping a torrent of motorik fury at bay. As the track closes, the dissonant noise rears up again, only this time its a controlled feedback-storm, eventually coming into its own as the other instruments fall out, leaving it hanging there, a quivering, metallic spectre. It's an incantatory, long-form cut, and one that promises big things.” The Quietus

Glasvegas Logo 


June 26, 2013 - New York, NY - Glasvegas is back with 'Later...When The TV Turns To Static', due out in the U.S. on September 3rd via their own Go Wow Records in partnership with BMG.

'Later...When The TV Turns To Static' is the third studio album by Glasvegas and is the next stunning chapter from one of the UK's most unique bands.  Written and self-produced by lead vocalist and songwriter James Allan, this ten track, 45 minute sojourn of heartfelt melancholia and broken relationships is set against a backdrop of scorching soundscapes that lift the soul into heights of abandoned euphoria.  There is no doubt!  Glasvegas have come home; turned their eyes from the blinding light back into the shadows, where reality lies. 

James Allan, Glasvegas song-writer, guitarist, vocalist, frontman, beloved people's poet (and profound Glaswegian), produced 'Later...When The TV Turns To Static' in Glasgow's state-of-the-art Gorbals Studio using a vintage sound desk once owned by Decca Records (and the actual desk Pavarotti's definitive Nessun Dorma was recorded on).

The first single from the album is "If," a pealing, poetic discourse on life's cruel dichotomies. ('If not for fear, hope is nowhere near.') "If" will be released digitally in the U.S. on July 9th. James Allan states "My idea for the song came about during a phone call a while back with my good friend Alan McGee. He was talking to me about something quite difficult that was going on at the time and I said to him, 'Alan, if we didn't go through the bad stuff, we wouldn't recognize the good stuff; it would be invisible to you."

Click here for a first listen to the radio edit of "If" and see below for the embed code. The album will be available for pre-order via the band's website. www.glasvegas.net

Glasvegas is: James Allan (Vocals, Guitar), Rab Allan (Guitar), Paul Donoghue (Bass), Jonna Löffgren (Drums)

Stay tuned for U.S. touring info.

“I’m Not The Loving Kind” Debuts Today

(June 26, 2013) – Vagrant Records is proud to announce that MARK LANEGAN will be releasing his new covers album, IMITATIONS, on September 17, 2013 on the label. Lanegan made the following comments on the new album:
“When I was a kid in the late sixties and early seventies, my parents and their friends would play the records of Andy Williams, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Perry Como, music with string arrangements and men singing songs that sounded sad whether they were or not. At home my folks were also listening to country music, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, George Jones and Vern Gosdin were some of our favorites. For a long time I’ve wanted to make a record that gave me the same feeling those old records did, using some of the same tunes I loved as a kid and some that I’ve loved as I have gotten older. This record is it. Imitations.”
Today fans can listen to the first track off the album, Mark’s take on “I’m Not The Loving Kind” at http://soundcloud.com/marklanegan/im-not-the-loving-kind. The twelve-track album was recorded earlier this year and follows his 2012 release, Blues Funeral.  Pre-order details for Imitations will be announced shortly.

  1. Flatlands
  2. She’s Gone
  3. Deepest Shade
  4. You Only Live Twice

  7. Solitaire
  8. Mack The Knife
  9. I’m Not The Loving Kind
